Backed by the mob, Madame Olga (Audrey Campbell) runs a quite unique
organisation in New York's Chinatown: First she gets various girls high on
drugs, then makes them her captives until they do her bidding, and finally
she uses them as whores and drug-peddlers.
After having established that, th film goes on to tell the fate of
several of Olga's girls:
- There's Frenchy (Leonore Rhein), whose father is a French diplomat
and whom Olga wants to use to extort money from her father before
eventually turning her into a whore ... and Olga's successful on both
- There's Lola (Mitzi Meer), whom Olga picks up right after she's
released from prison, which is pretty much out of the fire and right
into the frying pan.
- There's Vicky (Veronica Bellach), who has become pregnant while
performing her duty (hustling) and whom Olga now uses as a help around
the house ... until a crude abortion is performed on Vicky, which she
- There's air hostess Jackie (Amy Eden), who seems to have taken more
than her fair share of Olga's drug money and whom Olga now has
- There's Colette (Rickey Bell), who once owned the brothel Olga is
running her operations in now, and whom Olga now keeps all tied up as
- ... and then there's Elaine, who simply won't submit to Olga's
torture no matter how cruel ... until Olga gives her a way to
escape, only to have her run right into the claws of Jimmy (Jimmy
Lyons), a drug addict whom Olga keeps around the house. Jimmy brutally
rapes Elaine, who only now comes to the conclusion that it might be
better to submit to Olga than to be brutally raped by Jimmy. Soon
enough, Elaine becomes Olga's top girl and her personal protgée ...
White Slaves of Chinatown is an enjoyably bizarre and dirty film
that in terms of sadism and sex must have pushed the boundaries quite a
bit, considering it's from the mid-1960's. From today's point of view the
film of course seems positively tame and one can't but notice its cheap
and exploitative style, like the immobile camera endlessly lingering on
half naked or scantily clad bodies, the lack of any stringent plot, the
total absence of on-screen sound (even in scenes that are supposed to have
dialogue) and the reliance on cheap stock music and a narrator who seems
to rip his lines right from seedy tabloids headlines - but all of this
comes across as somewhat endearing (at least from today's point of view).
And then there's of course the central performance by Audrey Campbell, who
puts just the right amount of over-acting into her role to make it work.
Of course, White Slaves of Chinatown will not be to everyone's
taste, it's cheap, it's vulgar, it's dirty, it's exploitative to the hilt,
and it's not necessarily particularly erotic - but for fans of vintage
erotica it's also lots of fun.
